PMI Thailand is dedicated to promoting Project Management as a quality profession throughout the Thai industry. The Chapter operates as a non-profit organization by a group of dedicated volunteers.
Introducing quality programs to the Thailand Project Management community incurs substantial costs. Venues must be rented, meals provided, and sometimes speakers’ costs are reimbursed when they need to travel to Thailand for presentations. For that PMI Thailand needs support. Funding is partially acquired through training sessions, the events themselves, and revenue from membership.
Membership is growing each month and the Chapter monthly meetings and One Day Events are becoming more popular. Please take a moment and look through the sponsorship benefits listed below. If they get your attention and would like to sponsor our Chapter, please do not hesitate to contact PMI Thailand. As a corporate sponsor, you will have the opportunity to:
